Need advice for this decision

Hi everyone, my name's Tim. I been a lurker on here for a few years now. I finally made the move to come to Prime Inc. I'm in the reefer position and I only got 3000 miles left in TNT. I live CA. He will let me use his address so I can lease since he is a lease operator. I don't really want to lease. But he says there is a lot of money to be made... Mind you, I'm his first trainee and his first time training. He's pretty good. Then a few days ago I got a call from a friend telling me his uncle was asking me to join a company he works at. But with that company, I would have to learn a manual and sent me a school and person to get into contact with. I've contacted them to see what's going on and according to them, they accept newly held CDL holders. This is a local position operating in a 60 mile radius with as much overtime as you can handle. Day shift is starting at 18-20 with nights going for 25 an hour. All benefits fully paid by the company. This is also aggregate trucking. For the school, it would only be 1600$ to take. So what I'm asking really is, should I break my contract and go for this place? Or should I stick with prime and see what happens? I really torn up what to do and I just need some guidance. I have read the book Brett has wrote and that helped form my decision to join this industry. Please help me make a decision and no sugar coating needed. I will listen and absorb everything you tell me. Thanks in advance
